The brothers discovered the historic specie, 4 silver denarii and 103 bronze sestertii and axes, by the Aa river close to Berlicum in central Netherlands. They offered their discover to Leiden College historian Liesbeth Claes, who returned to the positioning along with her colleagues and located two more coins and a bronze pendant from a horse harness, dating to between a hundred and twenty and 300 Advert. The coins had been additionally easy to this point-the earliest came from the time of the Roman Republic, which fell in 27 BC, while the newest ones had been minted underneath the reign of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, who died in 180 Ad.

A dupondius (brass coin) discovered at the positioning depicts Emperor Trajan in both sides. She theorized the follow of leaving martial choices developed through the Roman interval. ‘That was an essential eureka second in my tutorial profession,' Claes stated. As a token of thanks, the brothers had been given the first copy of Claes’ report on the coins, printed by the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands.
